9:05am
perhaps vatican spring, move to the style to the substance that many want to see. >> reporter: yes. we're going to have to wait and see about that. he hasn't actually done much in the way of real policy changes of initiatives and he certainly is the hope and change pope but he's the head of a body the vatican that's very resistant to change. i've read, for instance, that observers say you don't change the vatican, the vatican changes you. therefore it's an old bureaucracy that doesn't use modern technology, modern message the way that some of ththe archbishops are used to. he's going to have quite a challenge trying to change the basic nature of the church, of the vatican, of the curia. he has made an announcement that he will not at the moment be
9:06am
making any changes in his staff. that itself is a break from tradition. we'll have to see who he appoints to what position to gauge how far he plans to go in changing this ancient institution. >> in light of that fact, how is he going to deal with serious problems? a report from the vatican scandal, the sexual abuse that has occurred for years, if not decades, and the report that is being left behind by pope benedict emeritus. how is he going to be dealing with those things? >> reporter: that's a report that was prepared by three cardinals who looked into the vatileak scandal. that was not shared with the cardinals as some cardinals hoped but rather locked up into the papal apartment in a safe waiting for francis to now look at. we don't know at this point,
9:07am
journalists have asked, we don't know if he's actually seen. but about apparently the contents are explosive. there were of course reports a month ago in the italian media that they detailed that there was a network of gay priests and play people within the vatican who were being blackmailed by a network of male prostitutes. and clearly, this is one of the problems he's going to have to deal with. really, beyond that it's the whole issue of governing, management of the vatican and that's going to keep him very busy, indeed. >> yeah. just an immense amount of work that needs to be done. >> big job ahead of him. ben wedeman. there was one person who definitely did not want francis to become pope. >> someone rather close to him, knows him very well. the former argentine cardinal, we are talking about his sister,

9:09am
u.s., for example, if they wanted to take 10% of everyone's bank accounts. one wonders if they can stick to this plan and not expect investors to flee. >> they are already backtracking big time on this, as you know. it's being restructured, as we speak. some point it's expected to be voted on by the parliament, basically anyone who has und20, euros in the baernk will not fa the levy. the finance minister reported to have resigned and, also, the british government, here's a little oddball aspect to it, the british government is flying 1 million euros on a plane to cyprus for british servicemen families who are in service on the island who may find difficulties getting taxed.
9:10am
this is giving you a taste for the total and utter chaos that surrounds the cyprus situation. >> i want to bring you in here, jim. do we expect banks will be open anytime soon? there's a lot of fear that people are going to try to get their money out as fast as possible. >> reporter: there is not -- they're not going to allow banks to be open until they sort out this mess and that's why parliament dwrans aarians are m here now. one member of parliament, part of the coalition government, he's going to vote no. he thinks it's going to fail. he thinks that vote will take place tonight. he said, democracy has to take place. so they will vote, even if it's going to fail the ball goes back to the eurozone. if he says cyprus simply is not going to agree to this idea of taking money out of bank accounts. i said what about the failure of the baernnks?

[ male announcer ] t 50nogeoff brake pads and shoes at meineke. welcome back, everyone, to "around the world." one o our top storys now. >> japan, crews are working to restore power to some of the cooling systems hit by an outage that happened last night. it was two years ago that an earthquake and tsunami crippled the nuclear plant. >> knocked out the cooling systems to the reactors and that led to meltdowns in three of them, tens of thousands of
9:15am
evacuees are still unable to return to their home. >> 11 years after the gruesome murder, pakistan has arrested a suspect in connection with the killing of journalist daniel pearl. senior pakistani official saying now that he's suspected of helping it arrange the kidnapping. >> 11 years. pearl, remember a report for the "wall street journal," kidnapped in pakistan researching a story about militants. his captors saent a video of hi beheading to u.s. officials. several others have been convicted for their role in the murder. president obama leaves tonight on his first trip to israel since taking office. the president will meet with prime minister netanyahu. the relationship between two has been described sometimes strained, frosty, dysfunctional. but the president's going to try to reassure israelis about his efforts to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. the expectations are, well, let's call them low.
9:16am
stakes, though are high for president obama's trip to the middle east, his first as president. besides israel, also stops in ramallah and also in jordan. >> and of course, a trip is complicated by issues, including iran's nuclear program and of course talking also about the bloodshed in syria, the civil war, not to mention israeli-palestinian conflict. john king is there. >> reporter: the bullets are real. complacency the enemy at the security training kacademy. >> we have enemies motivated on us to do attacks in the cities, settlements, wherever there are jews. we're not waiting for the suicide bomber to come. we want to be prepared. >> reporter: expect the unexpected is what gat, a colonel in the israeli reserves, teaches students like these men training to protect jerusalem's light rail service.
9:17am
yet, he has zero expectations president obama's visit will make any difference at this time of increasingle israeli-palestinian tension. >> i remember my mother said when i was a child, i hope you don't are to go through the army. i told her always, since i was a child, i don't think that will be true. and me, i'm not telling that to my kids. i'm telling them, listen, guys, these are the facts, if you live in israel, you'll probably have to go to the army. >> reporter: low expectations done mean there aren't enormous stakes. >> he does not want to be the american president on whose watch iran either gets the bomb or he needs to bomb and he doesn't want to be the american president on his watch that two-state solution formally expires. >> reporter: and israel promotes the visit as proof of unbreakable alliance. yet former u.s. diplomat aaron david miller knows the relationship between the president and prime minister
9:18am
netanyahu is frosty, at best. >> the most dysfunctional relationship in the history of the u.s., the u.s.-israeli relation. no sense of confidence, trust new york capacity to give the other the benefit of the doubt. >> reporter: hard to imagine the neighborhood as in any more messy. the president believes he has a year or so to give diplomacy a chance. the prime minister prefers a faster deadline for military strikes. syria is another worry. if the united states gives the syrian opposition more help, israelis worry regime change to the north could complicate relationships with egypt to the south. then there is this, rising palestinian anger at the collapse of the peace process. treatment of palestinian prisoners, and continued building the west bank israeli settlements. he sees nothing in the short term to ease palestinian complaints. >> they want something concrete. they need a game changer.
9:19am
they need a paradigm changer. the president is not going to offer that on this trip. >> reporter: no game changers, but after more than four years in office, his first up close look as president from this region's unique dividing line. >> john king joining us live from jerusalem. john, we know we don't expect any major policy breakthroughs here. what does the president hope to accomplish during this brief visit? perhaps fence mending with netanyahu? >> reporter: i do think, suzanne, both leaders just won the election, one american official put it to me, they're stuck with each other, like it or not. president obama's second term, netanyahu's third. they are stuck with each other. they have huge challenges. iran, syria, perhaps the israeli-palestinian process down the road. no one expects them to be best buddies but if they can get along better, and i want to emphasize, both governments
9:20am
stressed that workingwise, professionally they get their business done. they may not like each other but they get business done. relationships always help in difficult situations. so, i think that is one of the priorities to try to become more friendly, if not best friends. and the iran question is huge. i spoke to the israeli president, perez, this morning and he says there's a greater understanding now the israelis believe and have no hesitation that the mepresident means when end the military option will be on the table and will not iran to get a warhead. now they believe the president, there's nor flexibility on the israeli side to give diplomacy more time. >> three decades after camp davis, asking the israeli-palestinian peace process. when the vice president was there, settlement building went ahead and what the israelis like to call facts on the ground, settlement expansion, partners in the new coalition government in favor of that.
9:21am
what can president obama do to do anything to that process? >> reporter: not much, michael, which is why he's not coming with a new american peace initiative and not coming with expectations. they'll be back at the bargaining table anytime soon. this president has nudges the prime minister, lectured the prime minister about settlements. it was frozen for a while. i was at two settlements where there is construction under way. in gaza and ramallah in the palestinian territories more people have no hope for peace and more palestinians say maybe we need a one-state solution. that is nowhere close to happening but you get -- you mentioned oslo, after 20-plus years of wait, being told again and again there will be some process that brings about a two-state solution, citizens on both sides, every day israelis and palestinians are skeptical it will ever happen. part of the skepticism is based
9:22am
on the deep distrust and dysfunction of the political leaders. >> john, thank you so much. the palestinians saying that the president not seen as much of a capablero in this situation. >> and so many presidents who think they come optimistic in the beginning and realize quickly that it is so much more complicated. in syria, things heating up as well. rebel and government forces accuse one another of firing a deadly chemical weapon. look what mommy is having. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is.

the street. you feel bad also because ordinary people, chinese, and expats aren't wearing that masks. it's a realization how bad it is. >> china's new government vowing to tackle that pollution problem. they have yet to give specifics on how they're going to get that done. but you can you imagine? >> terrible. >> you don't recognize anybody, can't talk really. can't breathe. >> exactly. boy, what a mess. all right. rio de janeiro, this is extraordinary. an early morning flight through the city. no, there's not a plane involved. >> okay. what are we seeing here? two dare devils in winged suits, yes, winged suits. this is last month. most of the city was sleeping. one of the guys slipped between twoscrapkyscrapers. >> don't try that at home. it's been ten years since the start of the iraq war.

girl: we might be hundreds of miles apart... but because we're connected, it's like we're all neighbors. if you have high cholesterol, here's some information that may be worth looking into. in a clinical trial versus lipitor, crestor got more high-risk patients' bad cholesterol to a goal of under 100. getting to goal is important, especially if you have high cholesterol plus any of these risk factors because you could be at increased risk for plaque buildup in your arteries over time. and that's why when diet and exercise alone aren't enough to lower cholesterol i prescribe crestor. [ female announcer ] crestor is not right for everyone. like people with liver disease or women who are nursing, pregnant or may become pregnant. tell your doctor about other medicines you're taking. call your doctor right away if you have muscle pain or weakness, feel unusually tired, have loss of appetite, upper belly pain, dark urine or yellowing of skin or eyes. these could be signs of rare but serious side effects. is your cholesterol at goal?

[ female announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. today marks exactly extend years sense the u.s. led a coalition to innovate iraq and topple saddam hussein. the anniversary's met with a wave of violence across baghdad, leaving behind dozens of dead bodies and piles of rubble. >> the frequent si of the attacks over the year makes it easy to look away and isn't as dangerous as it was from '05-'08 but it's much different for those who are there every day living through it. listen to the tweet from arwa damon. she says, i want to believe that if people could see the expression on iraqi faces, hear they're voices tremble, they would not be so indifferent to
9:32am
what is happening here. >> live from baghdad. arwa, first of all, i mean, it's extraordinary when you think about the last ten years and how much reporting that you've done out of that area and still today, the iraqi civilian, citizens who live there, are if a place where it's so dangerous and it's still very much at war. >> reporter: it most certainly is. this is a war that never ended for the iraqi population. today was a day that might as well have been back when the violence was really at its worst. there were 17 car bombs and 7 roadside bombs that went off the entire couldn titire country. shof the car bombs, 5 of the roadside bombs happening during rur rush hour, 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. areas where people were gathers, markets, busy roads, areas where day labors come together, you know, you read that tweet out.
9:33am
the expression i was talking about, seeing on people's faces was one of complete shock and it was also as if the color completely drained out of their faces. they were just so terrified, not only because of the memories that it brought back, but because it shook them to the very core. their voices were trembling talking about this. this is so many people's worst fears realized. it drives home the reality that so many iraqis continue to live with, that is this country's neither stable nor secure at this point. >> ar whatwa i don't know if yo added up how much time you've spent in iraq. you were back a couple weeks ago, you're back now. what's it like to go back and meet with the people again? >> reporter: you know, it's very emotional and there's a lot of mixed emotions that goes with. there's excitement of reconnecting with people one has
9:34am
known over the years or talking to the people for the first time, getting an idea where they were. i was actually truck by how many people this time around are telling me that they feel more hopeless than they did back when the violence was at its worst, despite the impression one might get when they first take to the streets of baghdad. a small snippet of what we've been seeing. there is a bustle to baghdad's streets that suggest routine. a normal. but this is still a city of blocked walls and checkpoints. violence that ripped iraq apart after 2003 permeates everything. where those boys are with their bikes, that's where the vehicle would pull up, victim dragged out of the trunk and shot in cold blood. those days you wouldn't see children gathered here for a game of soccer. instead, they would all have been crowded around witnessing an execution.
9:35am
you saw there one of the many al qaeda killing fields that existed here. also a city where mosques were turned into torture chambers, where explosions happened as we saw this morning, just about anywhere. it's really hard at those upon in time to find a neighborhood in baghdad that isn't associated with some sort of tragedy. >> good to see you there, reporting again. sad that the story's still so sad. thanks, arwa damon there. >> thank you, arwa. >> we'll talk later. >> she was brought to the united states as a baby for a life-saving surgery. now baby noor is back in iraq and having a tough time.

her name is noor, it means light in arabic. her story a bright spot during
9:39am
the height of the iraq war. >> american soldiers helped save the girl who had spina bifida. >> how is she doing? we first brought you the story several years ago. [ speaking foreign language ] >> reporter: the doctor says she seems strong today but noor has been battling life-threatening medical issues since she was born. today's checkups a rarity. in iraq, more than a year after the u.s.-led war officially ended, quality medical care is hard to come by. this girl, who has the congenital disorder spina bifida needs a specialist but didn't able to see one. her family worries.
9:40am
how long till a complication? how long will their baby noor live? it's been five years since i was last in iraq, reporting on the war. while i was there, i made a deep connection with some of its people. now i'm returning to iraq in search of a little girl i once met a girl who became known to millions. i've always seen noor's stories a metaphor for the war. she was someone whom the americans saved but now she's unfinished business. seemingly forgotten by the same people who helped her. i first met noor in 2005. i was an embedded reporter in iraq when soldiers came upon her family during a routine house raid. noor was tiny, she couldn't move her legs and had a growth on her
9:41am
back. her family was told she had spina bifida and in iraq there was nothing they could do to help her survive. american doctors knew something could be done. >> her best shot would be to go to the united states for somewhere else. >> reporter: her family quickly agreed to the life-saving invention. i was riding in the back of the military humvee night that noor was shuttled away from her home. despite warnings of complications and extended care, her father and grandmother were resolute, get treatment for noor, it was life or death. noor's surgeries worked. doctors in america fused the gap in her spinal column, saving her life. that was their goal. but the burden of taking care of noor would fall on her family in iraq. the route to noor's home is different this time. her treatment in america brought trouble to her family.
9:42am
they had to leave their old neighborhood, driven out by the suspicion of family ties to america. so many things have changed in the five years since i've seen her. i wonder what her life is like. who's taking care of her? how are you? wow. so big. i can believe it. she's beautiful.
9:43am
>> reporter: there aren't many options for noor in iraq. there are own two public schools for kids with disabilities in baghdad. at school one of noor's teachers tell me that noor is shy and reserved, even isolated. and she fears that noor's developing mental and emotional problems. it's not just noor's disability that complicates things. her family is fragmented and struggling. noor's own mother left soon after her birth. she told her family she didn't want to raise a disabled daughter. noor knows that, too. her family has told her. noor's father works all day selling fruits and vegetables, making just enough for the family. her aunts and grandfather help raise her. and although he's there for her now, noor's grant father knows
9:44am
he won't always be there to take care of her. and he worries that no one will. >> reporter: noor's family held
9:45am
out hope she would one day be able to walking even though the american doctors said she wouldn't. they also said she'd face a lifetime of problems, typical for someone with spina bifida. >> reporter: i watch as noor flips through photos of her journey. she seems resilient but in reality a healthy life appears out of reach. the family's hoping someone will help them again, but who in noor's unfinished business, they say and in some ways they've become a symbol of her country, a broken girl in a broken land.
9:46am
>> sad story. >> unbelievable. you want to help her, you know. >> that's what the family wants, too. the and the grandmother did a lot of help for the child, she's passed away. a lot more of information on baby noor on our website. >> a special section devoted to iraq including a photo gallery on cnn.com/iraq. >> ukraine's parliament is back in session. guess what? it started out like this -- >> plus, kids literally living on a moundfrash but using the garbage to turn their lives around. ♪ rand ♪ ♪ 'cause germs don't stick on me ♪ [ female announcer ] band-aid brand has quiltvent technology with air channels to let boo boos breathe.
